Planning Commission recommends approval for phase 2 of The Haven
The planning commission has recommended approval for the building of the second phase of The Haven at Celebrate Virginia South.
It will be a 250-unit building located next to the first phase.
Representatives from Johnson Development Associates, Silver Co. and an expert on economic impact addressed the council.
They said that 82 percent of the units in phase I have been leased and the average age of residents is 27-28, with an income of $82,500.
The project would generate 280 jobs and $5 million for the city.
